We are presently, May 2020, unaware of any safety codes that apply to portable vertical platform lifts. There is no question that there is a need for applications where a permanent lift is either not practical simply not required. Many of these applications we have encountered were for commercial applications as well as residential.
Points of importance:
- This portable unit will only reach a maximum height of 52in. It is limited to this height to add yet another level of safety and stability when the load is elevated.
- The minimum travel height this lift can address is 16in. The upper toe plate ramp extension is automatic, resulting in easier exit at upper landing.
- The maximum capacity (load) you can lift is no more than 550lb.
- The intended use for this portable lift is mobility. The lift can be moved in place and easily returned to it's storage location when the event is over.
We have delivered this portable lift model to a number of situations where nothing else made sense. Examples are:
- Community center gyms
- Stage environments
- Temporary structures
- Banquet halls
